Women in Egypt continue to suffer sexual and gender-based violence, as well as discrimination in law and practice. Instead of securing a means for providing an effective remedy to women, the authorities have often done little to stop or investigate such abuses. In this document, Amnesty International sets out the key measures the Egyptian authorities need to take to ensure that the security forces respect, protect and fulfil women’s human rights, and, more broadly, to implement policies that would better protect the rights of women.
